    I know the answer to this before I ask it, but just in case I've missed something.

    Is there any way of turning the pop-up flash off when it is raised.

    Yes' I know, raising it turns it on, lowering it turns it off.

    I can't speak to the GH2 and G3, but on the GF1 there doesn't appear to be any way to turn the flash off while it is open. I believe it IS possible to turn off the flash (whether up or down) on the E-PL1, but I don't have the camera with me at the moment to confirm that.

    I'm curious as to why you'd want to turn the flash off but leave it up, though.

    I don't think so. Force On but no Force Off. Out of curiosity, why would that be easier than lowering it?

    I want to fit a mini diffuser........ speedlight prokit flexi bounce

    To turn the flash of would mean closing it and removing the diffuser every time....PITA
